His Word

Jesus rebuked him and said, "Be quiet! Come out of him!"
Then the demon threw the man down in front of them
and came out of him without doing him any harm.
They were all amazed and said to one another,
"What is there about his word? Luke 4

Indeed, what is it about the word of Jesus? How his word consoles and heals us; rouses us from our drowsy complacency and despondency. Jesus' word breaks in, comes to dead ends and says, “Enough. Be quiet.” For God’s word is divinely efficacious. Jesus is the Word made flesh and what he opens no one can close. We listen attentively when he speaks to us.
